Sam Flint

History student, professional ranter

After briefly being involved in local politics during the 2015 elections and investing more and more time keeping up to date with current affairs, I began to write more seriously about politics in 2016, which resulted in my blog. History has always been my main interest, and as a student I love delving into the past to compare what has been to what is happening now. My interests range from defence, to foriegn affairs and British and American domestic issues. You can find my blog here: https://theramblaholic.wordpress.com/

The Problem With Us Young People On The Left

We can no longer afford to shy away from uncomfortable facts or difficult truths which challenge our beliefs. We can no longer afford to antagonise people away from the left and force them into the hands of the far right. The left is the home of debate; it is our legacy, and we must seize it. Talk to people, listen to them, and develop your ideas when they hit the inevitable problems that reality throws at us. Embrace the challenge, don't back away.

Trump Is No Russian Puppet, We Are The Ones Truly Under Putin's Control

Putin may hand us the tools, but it is we who choose to use them. Whether it be through thoughtless articles, poor journalism, or worse, misinformed citizenry, who would rather squabble over party politics and pointless issues than rally to the defence of our democracies, against a man who seeks to create a new world order.
